    So had this thought after hearing the story on the radio: Have you guys heard about the rich guy that hides money around town then tweets the hints/location of it and people swarm the area looking for it? I wonder could this be turned into an opportunity. Just off the top of my head, say a website is purchased ww.freemoneycalifornia-loaded with a content locker of some sort/cpa deal or 3. Say the word is put out that there is hidden money at some local part-to go to this website to get hints/location. The surfer goes to the site has to do a cpa to get the hint. Have multiple offers -multiple hints. Make it genuine-actually hide some cash somewhere-have a tweeter feed-let the finders post pics of their money--etc etc.....just typing off of the top of my head...
    Bad idea? Legal issues?

    Well, let's break it down for readability, like this:

    Sounds like a great idea if you know how to use it.
    Many people call it a rally, you should engineer quests and so on. This could be a monthly activity and you could get sponsors for it :p

    This is a fantastic idea OP but like you I have no experience on the legality of such a venture. Is there anyone that can give their input on the matter?

    Sounds good, don't know about leg al issues you can have with your idea.

    You should ask a lawyer.

    Good luck!

    Maybe a better idea would be to make all the hunting and the actual prize available on the internet instead of a particular town? You could make some sort of a flash game for treasure hunting and the player should visit specific sites and do some tasks to get hints how to progress. And the winner is choosen from the ones that reached the finish. This way you'd reach a wider audience and there are no legal problems with this as far as I know. As for local thing - it depends on country you live in but you'll need some kind of permission from the town government.

    EDIT: and you could gather the email addresses from the players :)

    Well it is a pretty good idea, just consider the legal side, try talking to a lawyer about it and see what he will say to you.

    It's a crazy but genuine idea. But it would require some investment on advertising (radio, newspaper, etc) to make it more legit. Otherwise people wouldn't even take the risk.

    I was in Cali not long ago and it was all over the news. People flashing the money they found. Twenty here and twenty there, people going crazy posting tweeter pictures of themselves. Maybe once it gets going advertising would take care of itself.
